Fantastic, top-floor, two-bedroom apartment in a beautiful, old building in the very, very heart of Dublin City. Dublin City is quite literally at your fingertips! This is the best located Airbnb listing in Dublin - and that's no exaggeration.
ON THE MAIN ROUTE OF THE ST PATRICK's DAY PARADE - the parade literally passes in front of the windows, giving you the BEST possible view of everything that's happening. You'll catch it as it comes up Dame Street, all along Lord Edward Street and as it turns at Christchurch Cathedral! A better view than from the $1,000 Grandstand Viewing Platform.
This is a top-floor, TWO-BEDROOM apartment in an Edwardian building right in the middle of the Dublin city's old historic centre.
It has unique won't-find-anywhere-else views of Dublin Castle and City Hall, two of Dublin's most iconic historic landmarks. The building itself is on Dame Street in Dublin 2, and is just a couple of minutes (or less) walk from most of Dublin's main historic, cultural, social and tourist attractions.
The apartment is full of history and character. It occupies the top floor of an old Edwardian building, located midway along Dame Street, which links Trinity College to Christ Church Cathedral.
As well as views over Dublin Castle and Dublin City Hall from the living room and one bedroom, the other bedroom looks west towards Christ Church Cathedral. Where else would you get it?
The apartment has been completely renovated in recent years (so has all the modern conveniences you could want, including fast WiFi internet connection, central heating, an electric shower and a fully-fitted kitchen), its original period features have been preserved (including solid oak wood flooring in the living room and bedrooms, granite stone flooring and a wonderful Belfast sink in the kitchen, and large sash windows in every room).
It has two bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with two single beds, which can be combined if required), a decent-sized living room with a kitchen off and a bathroom.
Every room has large sash windows characteristic of the Edwardian era (early 1900s), so the apartment is full of natural light (if you're lucky, sunshine too!) from early in the morning until late in the evening.
Everything you might need (bed linen, towels and kitchen items) is provided, as well as a small library of books on Dublin. Free 30Mb Wifi.
You have access to everything and everywhere - it's all yours.
Interaction with Guests
I'll meet you when you arrive to say hello, give you keys, show you around the apartment, tell you what's what in the area and answer any questions. I'm Irish, though, so there'll be no hugging. After that, if you need anything or have any questions, you can phone or email me. Always available and happy to help!
Have a glance at a map of Dublin and you'll see that Dame Street is right in the centre of everything that Dublin has to offer. Trinity College is at one end of Dame Street (3 minute walk from the apartment) and Christ Church Cathedral is at the other (2 minute walk in the other direction). On one side is Dublin Castle and City Hall, and on the other is Temple Bar.
All other notable parts of the city – such as Grafton Street area, St Stephens Green, Merrion Square, O'Connell Street – are within a 10-15 minute walk.
As well as being immersed in Dublin's history and culture, you're surrounded by the best cafes, restaurants, pubs and shopping in Dublin.
One of the things that previous guests have all remarked on is that they didn't need to use public transport at all - no buses, no trains, no taxis. Very genuinely, you can walk anywhere in the city centre within a matter of minutes. Dublin City is quite literally on your doorstep!
However, if you want to travel further afield, there are 3 taxi ranks on Dame Street itself (mere seconds away); there's a Dublin Bikes station across the street; dozens of bus routes within 50 metres; Jervis LUAS (tram) station is 5 minutes walk, and Stephen's Green LUAS (tram) station is 8 minutes walk; and Tara Street and Pearse Street DART (train) stations are both less than 10 minutes walk. If you're looking to travel out of Dublin, you can be in Connolly Station, Heuston Station or Busaras within 10-15 minutes. It's also a 2 minute walk from the Aircoach's Trinity College/College Green stop (Aircoach is an express airport-to-city bus service, which runs every 10 minutes and will get you to or from the airport in just 20 minutes).
Other Things to Note
Ordinarily, the minimum booking is 2 or 3 nights (depending on whether it's a midweek or weekend booking). However, I'll always try to facilitate one-night bookings. Again, just ask!
Standard check-in is at any arranged time from 3pm-9pm. If you require a check-in outside of these hours, please let me know prior to submitting a reservation request. Standard check-out is before 10am on the day of departure.
Please note that the weekly rate does not apply for special events or holidays, including St Patrick's Festival week.
This is a residential building so please be considerate and respectful towards neighbours - this includes all the usual stuff but particularly noise, especially in common areas (entrance, stairs, hallway etc) between 10pm-8am).
Please don't smoke - neither in the apartment itself nor anywhere else in the building. Hanging out a window isn't an acceptable solution, I'm afraid. The only option is to exit the building and smoke on the street.
Please don't engage in any sort of behavior or activity that could or might cause damage, injury or anything else that we'd all probably prefer didn't happen. If you break or damage something, please inform me immediately - and it will have to be paid for.
Please don't invite anyone - whether known to you or not - into the apartment without first clearing it with me. Only individuals named on the original reservation can stay in the apartment.
Guests are advised to have their own personal policy of insurance in case of accidents, personal injury or loss/damage to property. No responsibility is accepted by the host for any losses, damage or personal injury sustained by any uninsured guest during their stay. By making your booking you agree to these terms and conditions.

We had a lovely stay at Garrett's apartment. It was welcoming and homely and we were pleased to find necessities such as towels, toiletries and tea bags already in the apartment! Also received really helpful information before we arrived about the best things to do in the area. Garrett was also really accommodating with check out times to suit our flight times. Would definitely recommend!
L'appartement est idéalement situé très proche de Temple Bar et de tous ses pubs. Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Garrett avant notre arrivée (un superbe mail rempli de recommandations d'endroits pour manger ou faire la fête) et à notre arrivée pour nous donner les clés.
Garrett s'est montré très accueillant et très joignable.
Notre séjour s'est donc agréablement passé grâce à cette réservation, rien ne manquait dans l'appartement.
Excellent communication and the guests were comfortable in his flat. Thank you!
A lovely appartement with a stunning view on Dublin Castle and City Hall. Located right in the centre of Dublin with all the pubs of the Temple Bar area on your doorstep.
Garrett was always easy to reach by sms. He put a lot of work in some pdf sheets which help you from finding your place to stay to finding the best places in town. Thank you for a great time!
The appartment is in a perfect location to explore Dublin. A friend of Garett was waiting for us at the appartment and showed us how everthing works. Very nice and uncomplicated contact. Even for 5, the space was perfect. Defently recommend to stay there if you like to be central!
Such a lovely flat in the centre on Dublin, would recommend to anyone wanting to spend some time there. The flat had everything we needed and more! Able to walk to Dublins main attractions from the flat and lovely view of city hall out of the window. Made to feel very welcome and also Garrett gave us loads of information about Dublin and places to go. They were also flexible were possible with the time we could get to the apartment on the first day, which was a massive help! Would stay here again!!!
A native Dubliner back living in Dublin after stints in New York, London and the West of Ireland. Sharing life with one big person and three little ones. Fond of travelling but always happy to get back to Dublin. The apartment I have listed is right in the very centre of Dublin City - very genuinely, it couldn't be any more central; the centre of the centre, if you like.
